ICER AIR RETURNS TO SAN FRANCISCO
ON NOVEMBER 2-3, 2007
Two-Day Action Sports, Music and Lifestyle Event to Showcase Urban Big Air
Ski and Snowboard Competition
SAN FRANCISCO (September 6, 2007) – ICER is thrilled to announce the next evolution of Esurance ICER AIR, an
action sports, music and lifestyle event. ICER AIR gained notoriety in 2005 by laying down 16,000 cubic feet of
snow on one of San Francisco’s steepest streets and hosting a big air ski and snowboard competition. A year later,
Esurance ICER AIR became the first and only stadium event in the United States. Now in its 3rd year, Esurance
ICER AIR will feature a 2-day multi-sport event on November 2-3, 2007. This year’s event will take place at
renowned AT&T Park, a major San Francisco landmark and home to the San Francisco Giants.
“Esurance ICER AIR is a constantly-evolving event. Each
year we try to raise the bar, to do something a bit bigger and
a bit crazier than we have in the past,” said Glen Griffin,
ICER founder and president. “Our main mission will
always be to bring the mountains to the city, showcasing
some of the most amazing athletes in the world in an urban
Esurance ICER AIR 2007 will feature a big air ski and
snowboard competition, freestyle motocross, skate and
BMX vert and street courses, wakeboarding, 60 exhibitors,
2 music stages, and a beer garden. Olympic and X Games
athletes will share the spotlight with a surprise headliner
band. And with a new branded look developed by the creative house GriffixThunkit, ICER AIR has firmly
established itself as a world-class event in the action sports industry.
“Esurance ICER AIR has become the official kick-off to winter as the best athletes in the world and all of the top
players in the industry converge in San Francisco for one of the coolest events ever,” stated event host and Olympic
Gold Medalist Jonny Moseley.
A newly designed ski and snowboard jump will rise over 10 stories in the middle of the ball park, extending over
350 feet in length and covered with over 200 tons of snow. Spectators will be afforded views of Olympic medalists
and X Games champions flying through the air against the backdrop of the spectacular San Francisco Bay. The
jump will take four days and more than 14,000 cubic feet of snow to build.
“We are excited about the progress we have made in the industry, to showcase these amazing skiers and
snowboarders on par with other action sports stars like Tony Hawk and Travis Pastrana,” said Moseley.
The big air competition is invitation-only and will feature a line-up of industry heavyweights, including last year’s
champions, skier TJ Schiller and snowboarder Travis Rice, back to defend their titles. Fourteen skiers and 14
snowboarders will compete for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes.
Among the many new features of Esurance ICER AIR 2007 is the introduction of a second venue, the Village.
Located adjacent to AT&T Park on the opposite side of McCovey Cove, the Village will be home to freestyle
motocross, a skate/bmx park, wakeboarding, 60 vendors and exhibitors, a giant ski sale, a music stage and beer
